Manchester United ended the summer transfer window having spent more than £150m on players as they look to bounce back into the Champions League at the first attempt.
A summer rebuild was always required after last season's nightmare, but few were prepared for the lengths Louis van Gaal would go to reshape his squad.
14 players have left the club permanently, another nine have gone on loan, and seven have arrived, with the first team almost unrecognisable from the team that led Sir Alex Ferguson to his 13th Premier League title in 2013.
Like Manchester City did a few years ago, Manchester United have had to overspend to bring in players of sufficient quality.
Luke Shaw - £27m from Southampton
The young England international arrived with a reputation as one of the best up-and-coming left-backs in the world, his performances for Southampton last season catching the eye. But he is yet to play and has already faced criticism from both Van Gaal and England manager Roy Hodgson about his fitness. Has a lot to prove.
Ander Herrera - £29m from Athletic Bilbao
Having failed to sign the creative midfielder last summer, United didn't mess around this time and secured the Spaniard early, but he's managed just one appearance this season after picking up an injury.
Vanja Milinkovic - Undisclosed from FK Vojvodina
The 17-year-old goalkeeper is one for the future.
Marcos Rojo - £16m from Sporting Lisbon
The Argentina international is yet to play a game for Louis van Gaal because of a work permit issue. Rojo is known for his fiery temper and strength, as well as his versatility. He will likely play on the left of Van Gaal's back three but can also fill in at left-back.
Angel Di Maria - £59.7m from Real Madrid
Manchester United broke the British transfer record to bring Angel Di Maria to Old Trafford and his quality was on show in his debut against Burnley, even if he failed to spark the club to its first win of the season.
Daley Blind - £14m from Ajaz
A Van Gaal favourite, Blind is a highly useful utility man who is excellent on the ball, quick and clever. He will probably start in the centre of midfield but could play wing back, like he did for the Netherlands during the World Cup.
Radamel Falcao - Loan from Monaco
The arrival of Falcao will end up cost United £19m for just a year of guaranteed football at Old Trafford - they do have first option to buy. Falcao will score goals but Louis van Gaal may have trouble finding a place for him into a team.
